I picked up a WinTV-HVR 900 TV USB stick. The device connects to a USB port and provides a fully features analog and digital TV decoder. I wanted it to be able to convert a bunch of VHS tapes to mpeg and to record some TV shows.

Installation was problematic and it took me an hour or so to figure out that my Trend Micro Agent quarantined one of the main components as spyware. After I had determined the cause of the trouble, and I disabled the Agent so I could install the software, it worked like a breeze and I can now easily watch, record and play back all TV shows that I want to capture.
